CJ Fransee funeral expenses

My nephew CJ Fransee was tragically taken from my sister, our family and friends on August 20th, 2017 at  the young age of 26.  He was hit and killed by a drunk driver while riding his motorcycle.  
CJ was a one of a kind rare gem and had a zest for life like no other.  He was kind, smàrt, audacious, fearless, adventurous, loving and  charismatic.   He loved everyone he  met and had a geniune free spirit.  CJ had a smile, smirk, and a hearty laugh that was infectious to say the least. 
CJ enjoyed all sports  riding wheelers, boating and tubing, ice fishing  and snowboarding.  But most of all he enjoyed spending time with his family and friends.
CJ was excited to start school on August 21st, 2017 to become a firefighter and was looking forward to starting a new job at Chrysler working in automotives, a passion of his.  With this transition in life, he had no medical or life Insurance. 
His mother, my sister not only is suffering the loss of her second child now to tragic accidents, she has been battling breast cancer ovr the last year.  She is now burdened with the loss of her son and the financial obligation of funeral expenses she was not prepared for.
Any donations to help cover funeral expenses and ease the financial burden would be greatly appreciated.
The funearly home would like to be paid by September 23rd, 2017. 
All donations will goto an account in his mother's name Robin Marie Szmagaj to pay balance to Bagnasc & Calcaterra funeral home in St Clair Shores, Michigan.
My goal is to raise enough money to cover the funeral experience so for my sister to help ease the burden of the loss of her son.
Thank you  and God bless all of you who are reading our cry for help in this matter.
